    Hello Mya keeps landing in her back. I realize her hips are slightly picked but I feel there is something else going in in her rotation. Thanks for the expert eye and any advise to help her.

    Are her eyes open? When she spots the ground, she should prepare for the landing. She is continuing to rotate until she lands.

    As she releases, she's throwing her head back and closer her shoulder angle. She should keep the head in and keep the shoulders extended as she releases, pushing the bar back slightly.

    This and also try keeping her arms higher . Currently she is pulling them down which is fine if a child is stalling. Adjusting the tap can fix a lot of what Geoffrey said as well. Put a video up from tha side so we can see that.
